Just watching the relegation threatened clubs' fans on sky sports news earlier, that could so easily have been us again in the scrap down the bottom but this season we can relax for once instead of checking other teams fixtures and hoping that they will be beaten.
Keep the faith lads, onwards and upwards!
Bang on the money. We were without doubt going to be down among the dead men.
Marin O'Neill is an astonishing appointment by the club. We have NEVER, in our history went and recruited a manager with such a track record, although of course a few have done wonders once here. Hopeless looking players have looked competent, almost all the players look far better and more organised, and staggeringly, ( this should really not be possible when a manager turns up a third of the way through the season), the team now looks much fitter.
We have a fairly standard line up so we are going to lose our fair share of games and have our bad days. But with some reasonable help in the few years he is here, MON will give us some times we will remember for long enough. We can now be the club that we should be .
It's not "One Day" any more. It's this day, these days.
Thanks for showing up Martin.
